Chinese multinational BBK Electronics Corporation, which owns Oppo, Vivo and OnePlus, has become the second largest company to have larger chunk of sales revenue in the Indian market in FY18.

As per the ET report, BBK Electronics’ Oppo and Vivo have filed their India revenue details with the Registrar of Companies (RoC). According to their latest regulatory filings, the combined India revenue of Oppo and Vivo was Rs 23,173 crore in FY18, although OnePlus hasn’t declared India revenue yet.
